A great rate for such a good location, just off the start of Calle el Conde in the Zona Colonial. The hotel is clean and functional. But it's by no means luxurious.
Our room was located off the indoor courtyard. So no view of the outside. It was a shame not to have a source of natural light, and we felt a little exposed by the window that looked out on to the indoor courtyard - the curatins were a little gappy. However, considering how busy the square is we were not troubled by noise at all, so don't know if it's best to have a street-facing view anyway...
The kitchenette was ok, but the fridge was broken and had been unplugged. So not very useful and not a nice smell to be greeted by.
However, I must say that the staff were friendly and helpful. One receptionist arranged for us to meet with the security guard so he could guide us to the right guagua for a day trip. Having toured the island, before leaving we returned to Santo Domingo with our luggage. Having a few hours to kill, we thought about asking the hotel staff if we could leave our bags. Despite our stay being over they were completely happy to help - lots of places wouldn't be so accommodating.
So, in summary, good staff save this hotel, but it's not the kind of place where you hang about in your room. Then again, at the price, what more can you expect?
